Song Production Information
Light and dark, the things you think are light going to the darkness, and and the things you feel are the darkest going into the light; everything is overflowing with elements of uncertainty.
What shall we do to break through reality? "Learn the old to know the new" is the concept in this classical techno track.
Video Production Information
When I first heard the song, the voice going "brightness ... darkness ... " was what made the biggest impression on me, so I started work focused around those words written like lettering from a horror film.
Anyway, the whole thing is supposed to be dark and scary.
